Numbers refer to the Corpus of Early Keyboard Music 1, edited by Willi Apel, which contains a transcription of all known sources of keyboard music of the 14th and 15th centuries — none of an earlier date being known — with the exception of two unusually large manuscripts, the Faenza Codex and the Buxheim Organ Book. Except for the Robertsbridge Codex (1320) and an English "Felix Namque," all sources are of German origin and date from the period c.1420-1460.
